City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare

This final instalment in the Mortal Instruments series was a vast improvement on its immediate predecessor. Finally, we are rid of the angst-ridden romance between Jace and Clary (no, they haven’t gone anywhere, but they’ve finally gotten over themselves!) and we’re launched into a great, plot-driven conclusion to the whole Sebastion / Jonathan, Shadowhunter versus Endarkened saga. All our favourite, well written characters are present, as is Cassandra Clare’s witty and engaging writing. As usual, all the adults (well, the mortal ones anyway) are completely clueless and the teenagers are the only ones with a decent set of wits, brains and courage. Being the end of the series, one might expect one or two characters to be sacrificed for the story but to tell you any more would be giving it away!

Needless to say, the whole series has been great, so if you're looking for some well written escapism, you'd do well to give The Mortal Instruments a go.
